One hundred years ago this past October, my great-grandfather Josef Golec immigrated from Żywiec. So, of course, I'd like to find out if and how I'm related to the Golec brothers:
This is a traditional Polish Christmas carol. Translated, the words include:
Welcome, our Saviour that we waited for! After long ages you come to our door; With the prophets waiting for you You appear tonight to Show Your holy grace. Show Your holy grace. So thus we have awaited You, Lord, And once you come, we’ll kneel humble, glad and true . . .
Cold winter night Cold winter night, when a voice is torn: Wake up, oh, shepherds, Christ your Lord is born! Thus now time do not waste, To Bethlehem do make haste! To welcome your Lord! To welcome your Lord! In a little manger Baby they had found, Spreading good will and glee all around. As the Lord He was praised, With their voices loudly raised, In unwavering joy. In unwavering joy . . .
Wesolych Swiat Bozego Narodzenia.
